Strawberry Kiwi Kale Smoothie

Just popping in quickly to say Hi!  Even though I just posted last week it feels like a lifetime ago.   I’ve been immersed in vacation-planning the last few days and feel like I haven’t had time for anything else.  We are planning to go to Iceland in May which I’m super excited about! It’s going to be a mix of relaxation (geo-thermal pools and hotsprings) and active days (glacier hiking anyone?).  We are planning to rent a car and do a bit of a roadtrip so I’m trying to plan where to stay each night and have a rough outline of what to do each day.  Ok…let’s be honest..by a “rough outline” I mean I have an intense planning spreadsheet in the works.  So if I’m a bit MIA it’s probably because I’m dreaming of being here!

Strawberry Kiwi & Kale Vegan Smoothie by TwoGreenPeas.com

Anyway, I though I’d share a green smoothie recipe I made today after work.  It’s banana-free and packed kale, strawberries and kiwi.  A little bit of extra chia gives it the thick creamy texture that you usually get from the banana.  We usually do a banana/kale/peanut butter and cinnamon smoothie inspired by the classic recipe in the Oh She Glows cookbook, but sometimes I feel like we are going through bananas at an out of control pace so I like to change it up once and awhile.   Plus it is finally getting a bit warm outside and there’s bright natural light in our condo after work; so I feel like summer-time strawberries and kiwis are appropriate.  Here’s to Spring; it’s finally almost here!!!

    You can never go wrong with strawberry kiwi, and especially when it is packed with kale. I always add kale or spinach to my smoothies. Thanks for sharing this great recipe!
